A video emerged online showing a car driving against traffic and almost running over a motorcyclist who was heading in the right direction.
The incident happened on 23 January at about 8.51pm, although the location of the incident was not specified.
The motorcyclist was seen riding down what appears to be an empty road when all of a sudden, a car emerged right in front of him.
The car was seen heading directly towards him and almost crashed into the motorcyclist, who took evasive action.
The motorcyclist managed to avoid the car by swerving to the right, escaping a collision by the skin of his teeth.
One second later and he would’ve been run over.
The motorcyclist was then seen stopping his motorcycle and looking back at the errant driver, who continued driving on ahead in the wrong direction.
